John Cooney of Boy Scout Troop 75, Kings Park, and a senior at Kings Park High School, would like to thank Kings Park and surrounding communities for their support and generosity in attending a fundraiser car wash held on June 21st of this year at Kings Park High School.

With the funds collected, John was able to complete construction of a duckling shelter, built at Sweetbriar Nature Center. It will be used to house ducklings beginning in the spring; they will be released at the end of summer, once they have matured. In the winter months, injured geese will make use of the shelter.

This project will contribute to John’s attaining the rank of Eagle Scout.

Best of luck John!
